While up in S.F. for The Hundreds Street Meet I got a e-mail from a beauty from Santa Cruz by the name of Savannah. She had noticed I was in town and expressed a interest in shooting with me while up in the Bay Area. I honestly had not intention of shooting any models, thinking that my time up there was going to be too quick. But after checking out her photos I didn’t want to pass up on this opportunity. Plus I knew it would make for a good test shot segment. After we got on a phone call and figured our schedules out, we were set to shoot the following morning at my hotel. Showing up at 8:00 a.m. we were ready to go. She had work later on in the day which is why we had such a early call time, but good for me I had a decent hotel room to serve as the backdrop. The set featured here was one of my favorite ones that we did, aside from the modeling subject I was working with, but moreso for the fact I shot this with my Leica Monochrom for a classic black and white feel. So scroll down to see my interview with Savannah as well as some more imagery.
